People who suffer from peripheral neuropathy know that this condition can be debilitating. The constant, diffuse pain makes performing even simple everyday activities extremely difficult. Worst of all, it may seem that there are no reasonable, long-term solutions to addressing this condition.
But if you’re suffering from peripheral neuropathy in Naples, FL, there is a potential solution that you may not have considered: chiropractic care and specialized physical therapeutics. Because this condition affects the peripheral nervous system, chiropractic is uniquely situated to address it. Let’s take a look at the details of how we go about treating peripheral neuropathy so that our patients can live life without fear of pain.
The role of the nervous system
The important thing to remember about treating this condition is that the nerves need fuel and activation to be healthy. The fuel they receive comes in the form of glucose, oxygen and essential nutrients. This resolves some of the major issues associated with peripheral neuropathy, such as numbness in the extremities and poor balance and coordination.
Our treatment system delivers these nutrients to the nerves by microcirculation via low-level laser, LED lights and infrared light therapy, as well as exercise and nutrition. It’s also possible that toxins and inflammatory agents need to be eliminated to restore the nerves to proper functioning. This may mean recommendations for dietary changes, such as eliminating certain foods or boosting vitamin levels.
An individualized process
Peripheral neuropathy is tricky to treat because each case is a bit different. A cookie-cutter program isn’t going to deliver results. That’s why it’s so critical to have medical professionals who will examine the specific details of your diagnosis and create a treatment program that’s right for you. While you might not see results overnight, the long-term impact on your quality of life is likely to be significant.
Nerves are activated through our treatment program using a delicate balance of massage, stretching, joint mobilization, vibration and home stimulatory exercises. Coming up with lifestyle changes that will be effective is another key element. Through this holistic effort that treats problems as part of a whole rather than in isolation, you can begin to realize results that will help mitigate the symptoms associated with this painful condition.
